Boys had small pizzas each, I had the Greek salad. Husband thought it was the best pizza he's ever eaten. All was very delicious and very fresh.

Best pizza I've had in awhile! Their cheese and sauce is fantastic. We ordered the Hawaiian pizza, and they made all of those flavors work...it was just delicious. Will definitely return if we ever make our way back to Branson.

was very surprised with this place. Very nice crust, almost like a pastry. I would agree that these pies are better when not overloaded with toppings. We also had salads with the Italian dressing, which was very nice. Our waitress told us that all of their salad dressings are made in house!

The Pizza by Chef is a small family run business and from the looks of it, you may not think the food to be good but it turned out that I was wrong. We had one of the best pizza and the service was most friendly and excellent. I recommend it highly to any one visiting Hollister area or any... More

I stopped in here with some friends based on an experience I had with the store in Branson West. I found out they had different owners. We had a supreme and a sausage. They both had a nice crust that was not too crisp and not too chewy. The toppings on the supreme had toppings piled high and they could... More

The calzones were great! Lots of filling, crispy crust, and very moist. Served with a good sweet marinara. We also go the garlic cheese bread which was really good. It was a lot of food, and wasn't too much for the amount.

Pizza by the chef is a wonderful locally owned establishment!! They are always extremely friendly, and have a very high-quality product. I love the Hercules, very comparable to a meat lovers pizza, they use salami and tons of cheese to make a wonderful pizza!
